Woolsery, Reino Unido

The whole of the Devon and Cornwall coastline is easily accessible from the lodge and the beaches within the area are some of the largest, unspoilt and memorable in the UK. Any time of the year, the beaches offer long walks on golden sands, surf that beginners and experts can enjoy, and family fun!
Beaches nearby include:
Sandymouth Bay - A National Trust beach, dog friendly all year round, licensed cafe, beach shop and toilets. Popular but unspoilt beach of pebbles and sand backed by incredible twisted cliffs. When the tide is out you can walk down to Duckpool and onto Bude, returning over the cliffs. Take care with the tide! Lifeguards in the summer months.
Duck Pool - A remote beach with rock pools overlooked by cliffs. Dog friendly all year round, toilets, ice cream most days and look out for the sausage sizzle during the summer months.
Welcombe Mouth Bay - Off the beaten track with no facilities at all. Dog friendly, waterfall cascades down on to the beach. Great rock pools and the perfect spot to watch the sunset. Stop off on the way back at The Old Smithy.
Bucks Mill - A picturesque retreat which has been trapped in a bygone age. Wind your way down the steep valley, that leads to this quiet, undisturbed village but don’t expect to find a pub or any shops! Park in the car park and walk down through the sleepy village street to the quay. The beach is sprinkled with disused lime kilns and the fascinating rocky spit which looks as if it’s reaching out to Lundy Island, which legend says was built by the devil! To add to the overall beauty of this location there are coastal waterfalls which project off the cliffs adding further splendour to this already unusual location. Well worth a visit with the kids as it’s quite interesting for them and has some great rock pools.
Northcott Mouth - Just over the cliffs from Bude, this beach is a great place to escape the crowds. Parking on the top with a short walk down to the beach. No toilets though, dog friendly all year round and there is The Rustic Tea Garden, set just back from the beach, where you can enjoy a delicious cream tea or ice cream in the garden of Margaret’s caravan. Lifeguards on duty in the summer months. Discover the wreck of SS Belem - a Portuguese ship that was seized at Lisbon Harbour in 1916 to be loaned to the Italians to bring coal from England. Her last voyage saw her falter in fog at Northcott Mouth on 20 November 1917. A crew of 33 men was rescued but the ship could not be saved. Today the remains of the ship can still be seen today at low tide, scattered across the beach (turn right at the last batch of rocks)
Crooklets and Summerleaze at Bude - both very popular with holidaymakers so the beaches get very crowded. Plenty of parking for both beaches with toilets, cafes and beach shops. Next to Summerleaze is the Bude canal and the bridge that connects to the beach is a popular spot for crabbing. The infamous sea pool is nestled between the two beaches. Disabled access available from the car park Summerleaze. Beaches have lifeguards.
No dogs allowed at Crooklets during the summer months and dogs must be kept on a lead at Summerleaze until 6pm.
Widemouth Bay - Popular surfing beach with full facilities. Plenty of parking. Dogs are allowed at Black Rock end of the beach.Lifeguards on duty.
Back in Devon and we have Westward Ho! (great place to watch the kite surfers), Instow, Saunton Sands, Croyde (approximately 45 minutes from the lodge).
Most beaches are easily accessed by car, have facilities and are perfect for watersports. No matter if you want to try surfing, paddleboarding, windsurfing, kite surfing or swimming, you will find a beach to suit your level of ability. If you're new or just starting out then there are plenty of surf schools to get you started.
There are several friendly surf schools in Bude who offer individual and group lessons but you will need to book in advance. If you want to book in advance try:
Big Blue Surf School in Bude 
Bude Surfing Experience - Also offer Paddleboarding (SUP) on Bude Canal, Bude Sea Pool as well as Summerleaze Beach.
The North Devon Surf School which is open all year round in Westward Ho! and offers shower facilities & changing facilities
At nearby Tamar Lakes there is a watersports centre offering sailing, padldle boarding, windsurfing and canoeing . Rowing boats are also available for hire.
Or you can simply hire a pedelo or rowing boat on the Bude canal.
Lundy Island is 11 miles off the coast and is owned by the National Trust. It can be visited by boat from Clovelly, Appledore or Bideford Quay and is populated by just a few people, many seals and puffins. Wreck diving is also available off Lundy.
Sea shore fishing is accessible from many places including Clovelly, Hartland Quay and Appledore with sea fishing trips going out from Clovelly and Appledore.
Coarse fishing locations include the Upper Tamar Lake , Jennetts , Melbury and Darracott reservoirs and trout fishing is available at Roadford and Colliford Lakes.
For a fun family day out whatever the weather, take your pick from a choice of theme parks, soft play zones, farm parks and leisure pools. If you’re after wildlife attractions, you’re in luck too – from award-winning zoos and aquariums to theme parks and natural trails there’s heaps to see and do. And with two of the area’s biggest attractions – the Milky Way Adventure Park and The Big Sheep – being just a few miles away from the lodge.
If you are in need of some wet day activities check out Bude Leisure Centre which has recently been refurbished and has a flume and wave machine.
Just behind the leisure centre is The Venue which has 10 lanes of bowling, four floors of fun in their massive soft play and a licensed bar and cafe.
Located in the heart of Barnstaple is North Devon Leisure Centre which offers spa facilities. You will also find Scotts Cinema, escape rooms, Tarka Tennis Centre, skate sessions, massive trampoline park and the Museum of Barnstaple and North Devon.
Hartland is remote but not without charm and has many craft shops and potteries in addition to cafés and restaurants. There is a long main street, with cottages either side, leading to the town square and the church of St John. Enjoy a view of some of the most spectacular coastline in the British Isles from Hartland Point, one of the wildest headlands imaginable. There are many wonderful vantage points, accessible by car or on foot, from which one can enjoy views of the coast.
Not far away is Hartland Quay where there is a beach (no dogs allowed) with a pub, shop and a local Shipwreck Museum. Some beautiful walks to be enjoyed from here; left to Spekes Mill Mouth where the famous waterfall plummets down a sheer cliff face onto rocks below and left to Blackpool Mill where you can find the famous cottage, known as Anne Hemmingway’s cottage from Sense and Sensibility and has been featured in many TV shows, including BBC production, The Night Manager.
Hartland Abbey and Gardens is a wonderful place to visit. Steeped in history and home to the Stucley family, it has been used for many tv and film productions, including the recent BBC children’s story Malory Towers, BBC One drama, Gold Digger, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society and has a fascinating display into the many productions filmed on the estate over the years.
It is so much more than just a historic house and there is so much to see and do and lots of space to run about. The donkeys: Becky and Snowdrop, peacocks, guinea fowl, Black Welsh Mountain sheep and the bantams all fascinate children.
There are tea rooms at the abbey and a packed calendar of outdoor theatre events so it is worth checking out.
The picturesque, ancient, fishing village of Clovelly is uniquely special and was once owned by the Queen. From Elizabethan days until today, Clovelly has been in private ownership, which has helped preserve its original atmosphere.
Clinging to a 400 foot cliff, it has no vehicular traffic, just donkeys and sledges. Its steep, cobbled street tumbles its way down to the ancient fishing harbour and C14th quay. It is a descent through flower-strewn cottages broken only by little passageways and winding lanes that lead off to offer the prospect of further picturesque treasures.
Visit The Red Lion on the quay, which serves delicious lunches, dinners and Devon cream teas. There is the Quay Shop at the harbour for take-aways to enjoy on the quay while watching the harbour traffic come and go. Boat trips are available to take you along the dramatic coastline. Clovelly is also famous for its lobsters (and crabs), which are sent away as far afield as France and Spain. In past centuries, the coastline was occupied with smuggling, wrecking and piracy and was notorious for shipwrecks, so since 1870, Clovelly has also had its very own lifeboat.
Visit one of our annual festivals such as the “Seaweed Festival” in June, “Maritime Festival” in July, “Lobster and Crab Feast” in September and the “Herring Festival” in November and there’s no extra admission charge.
For those who do not want to walk back up, there is a fare-paying Land Rover service for much of the year to return you to the top of the village where you can also visit Clovelly Court Victorian kitchen gardens and magnificently restored Victorian glasshouses. It lies adjacent to the C13th parish church of All Saints.
Clovelly offers breathtaking scenery and lengthy walks along the cliff tops. Hobby Drive, built after the Napoleonic wars to give employment to Clovelly's returning soldiers, winds its way through woods and offers superb views of both Clovelly harbour and Bideford Bay. Walking the other way takes you along the dramatic North Devon stretch of cliffs towards Hartland Point, taking in the little carved shelter of Angel's Wings and the Wilderness Summerhouse with its magnificent view over Mouth Mill Cove, once the haunt of smugglers.
Nearby Westwood Ho! is great for some good old fashioned family fun with crazy golf, amusement arcades and go-karting. Recommend a visit to The Pier House which is perched majestically on the cliff edge overlooking Bideford Bay and Lundy Island. Modern design with a fantastic sun terrace. Or try The Pig on the Beach for some tasty pub grub.
If you fancy a spot of retail therapy the local towns have lots to offer, ranging from high end brands and retail villages to independent boutiques and traditional workshops to discover. Atlantic Village is an outlet shopping centre on the outskirts of Bideford with over 30 stores including GAP Outlet, Nike Factory Store, Saltrock and M&S Outlet. Open 7 days a week with free parking the village is also home to Wow, an indoor play area.
Dartington Crystal at Torrington is well worth a visit and there are many local potteries and craft studios to be found in surrounding villages.
A number of local stables offer horse riding along the coastal paths or cross country (see leaflets in drawers). Or if you want to book ahead of your trip we recommend Broomhill Manor Stables, just outside of Bude.
The Tarka Trail is a great bike riding route where you can stop off at a variety of places along the trail. We use Bideford Cycle Hire – but there are lots of leaflets in the drawers within the lodge for further information. Cycle hire is also available at Bude where you can cycle the canal path. Advisable to book day ahead to avoid disappointment, especially if you are heading down to Wadebridge to cycle the Padstow trail.
Nearby golf courses include Bude, Holsworthy, Royal North Devon, Great Torrington, Libbaton, Highbullen and Saunton.
For garden and historic house enthusiasts, a visit to Hartland Abbey, Tapeley House and Gardens, Arlington Court, RHS Rosemoor Gardens and Marwood Gardens are a must.
Have a day out and explore the stunning North Devon Coast - Heddon Valley is a must and so is a day trip to Lynton and Lynmouth (we often do the trip to Lynmouth when we are heading home as you can pick up the M5 from Minehead).
If walking and simply enjoying the scenery is more your thing, the beaches are daisy chained together by the South West Coast Path offering breathtaking views for mile after mile.
Wildlife enthusiasts will enjoy the many local nature reserves and country parks which include Northam Burrows, Braunton Burrows, one of Europe's largest areas of sand dunes with important plants, Kenwith Valley Nature Reserve, Tamar Lakes, Isley Marsh near Instow - 97 acres on the Taw estuary, Brownsham near Hartland, Welcombe and Marsland , Bucks and Keivills Wood and Lundy Island.
The food scene here is second to none, with cosy foodie pubs, great restaurants, traditional tearooms and everything in-between serving fantastic Devon and Cornish produce. Make sure you find time for a cream tea, pint of cider or Devon crab sandwich whilst you’re here. The pub in the village at Woolsery, The Farmers Arms, is fantastic but booking is essential and most probably ahead of your visit. Dogs are allowed in the bar area. Upstairs lounge area with traditional pub games, walled garden, Fancy a la carte menu for the restaurant side but the bar menu is also good. The pub also runs the chip shop next door to the pub in the village, so you can place your order and have a pint as they will call your order through. As well as the chippy, they have also taken over the village shop so you can pick up some lovely goodies and prepared food to heat up at home.
One of our other favourites is The Old Smithy at Welcombe, cosy family and dog friendly pub with open fire for the winter months and a large garden for the summer – always best to book a table, especially in the summer season. The Bank at Bude is also good, which serves great tapas but again best to book.
For the best cream team we recommend a visit to Boscastle Farm Shop (approx 30 minutes from the lodge) Beautiful views and outstanding food, using local produce. There is also a farm shop there and a couple of great walks along the coast path. Combine it with a visit to the pretty fishing village of Boscastle where you can visit the Witches Museum.
If seafood is your thing make sure you pay a visit to The Boathouse at Instow. They have a fantastic roof terrace overlooking the Torridge Estuary to Appledore. Dog friendly and a top spot to watch the sunset over the water.
Check out The Glorious Oyster at Instow - seafood shack, oyster bar and beach cafe which can be found behind the sandhills. Not licenced but they are happy for you to BYO. The seafood doesn’t get much fresher and you will get to try some really good local food here, including Bideford Bay Skate, Appledore Mussels, Clovelly Lobster and Spider Crab. Plenty of vegan friendly food too and they do the best Devonshire Splits (split doughnuts)!
If you decide to cycle the Tarka Trail, Instow is a great spot to stop for lunch or a picnic on the beach. Whilst you are there a visit to John’s is a must - brilliant deli and café offering takeaway food, ice creams and the store is fab for local gin!
Visit The Boathouse’s sister restaurant, Seagate Hotel in Appledore or try the Flame Factory on The Quay at Appledore for wood fired pizza, flame grilled burgers and rare bred Clovelly Longhorn steaks.
Just a short drive along the Cornish coast there are some great places to visit and explore, including: Tintagel, Crackington Haven, Polzeath, Port Isaac (where Doc Martin is filmed), Rock, Padstow and the Eden Project.
